Native American Flute, Native American-Style Flute, and American Indian Flute Makers


Please Note: A listing in this directory does not constitute an endorsement. Research a flute maker prior to making a purchase.

Cultural Note: Generally speaking, a "Native American flute" is a contemporary instrument made by a tribally-enrolled craftsperson. A "Native American-style" flute is a contemporary instrument made by a craftsperson who is not Native American in heritage and not tribally-enrolled. An "American Indian flute" is a traditionally-made instrument crafted by a tribally-enrolled flute maker. To show compliance with the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its subsequent amendments, flute makers should and do indicate the category of instrument that he or she crafts.
